It's St Patrick's Day!


St Patrick

Shamrocks, leprechauns, pots of gold… Don’t these words “ring a bell”?

It’s St Patrick’s Day (or Paddy’s Day if we use the colloquial expression), Ireland’s national feast. On March 17th Irish people wear green clothes (green is Ireland’s typical colour) and hold parades all around the world.

You can learn more about the celebration at this link.

Now may I ask you a question: What do shamrocks have to do with St Patrick? And what is the relationship between leprechauns and this feast?

If you know the answer, write a comment. I’ll be happy to read it :-)

Now watch a funny short video on St Patrick’s life:
